What is the film about?

After Effects Animated Short

A solitary Knight battles increasingly deadly foes during a VERY brief quest.

What influenced it?

Take your pick of medieval knights and dragons epics of the past. Their quests are usually a lot longer (and more successful) but any will do…

A little background information...

It’s been a very busy year of client animation work here at LeeDanielsART Studio , so sadly I have not had much time to work on personal webseries ‘Jungle Brawl’ or planned sequel to my Spy skit ‘Clearance’ (3-4min Eps).
In light of this, to keep up momentum on my personal output, I have decided to release a bunch of ‘short’ shorts when gaps in the schedule allow.
This is the first… ‘A Short Epic’

How was the film made?

It was made using Adobe Creative Suite.
2D/3D Animation work was done solely in After Effects and edited in Premiere.
All illustration work on display was created using a mix of Illustrator and Photoshop.
Sound effects were a mixture of recorded originals and Soundbooth/Garageband stock FX
The score is an amazing great piece created by VideoCopilot as part of the ProScores package, which is layered and edited down to fit the action.
